7:34 am
mellody hobson is in chicago. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: why do we see business travelers turning to uber rather than renting a car? >> well, pun intended. convenience is driving this decision. when you really think about it, it is so much easier to step off the curb at los angeles airport, lax, and stop into your uber drive, rather than waiting in the taxi line or taking a shuttle to the car rental company. once you're in the car you can work and you don't have to worry about parking. a whole host of issues that make it much easier. it's more about convenience than even cost. >> been there, done it. catching that shutting. nog like seeing the shuttle drive away as you run up to the that is always fun! >> what do the cost breakdowns show you about representativinge ing -- renting a carp. >> at denver, two-day rental of a car costs you about $270 when

come on in pop pop. happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today.
7:50 am
and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. hello, nice to meet you. melda. i'm john. we invited you here today to get your honest opinion about this new car. to keep things unbiased, we removed all the badging and logos. so, what do you think it is? i would say lexus. maybe acura. feels like a bmw. let's look at the interior. reminds me of the inside of my friend's lexus. so, this car supports apple carplay siri, open maps. nice. wow. she gets me. someone really took their time laying this out. yeah. this car also has teen driver technology. it even mutes the radio until the seatbelts are buckled. wow. my husband could use that. i'm very curious what it is. what price range would you put this car in? fifty to sixty-five. the eighty-thousand dollar bracket. well, what if i told you this is the 2016 chevy malibu? this is a malibu? yeah, let's go check it out. no way, it's a chevy! oh, wow. and it sells for? it starts at twenty-two five.
